Rated 3 out of 5 by from kilt review Kilt is good quality and good fit except it is too long. I would like to be able to state the length when ordering.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a Kilt I have three of these kilts and they are terrific. Great fit, light weight, large pockets and very comfortable. Best for hiking and just around town as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent The kilt is well made. The material is light and perfect for warm weather. The internal belt and side pockets are functional for daily use. The only improvements would be to add beige, navy, and tartan color choices and to make a cooler weather version in heavier material.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent every Day Kilt Caveat: I wear kilts almost every day while doing just about everything. This kilt is excellent for every day wear. It is light and durable with a modest form and good fit. While, like most kilts this needs to be ironed after washing, it isn't terribly complicated to do so. The fabric is very soft and light. It appears to be stain resistant as well. I dripped mayonnaise on the apron and it washed right off without staining. The "modesty snap" is a nice feature, but it is really easy to unsnap when walking up stairs. This kind of defeats the purpose. The belt has a tendency of becoming unfastened and is not very attractive (cheap plastic buckle and black nylon web belt). I wish I could swap it out, but it isn't that big of an issue. The pockets (one on either side) are nice and big. I would like to have a back pocket, but this is a preference. I also wish there were more colors available. All told, this is a bit pricy but a well made and comfortable kilt. If more colors come out and/or it goes on sale again I will probably buy more of them. FYI, I am 5' 10" and a size 34 waist (probably closer to 33 actually) The Large fits me with a bit of looseness in the waist and rides right at my knee if I wear the belt at my hips.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great, but could do with more pockets To start with: everything you've heard is true. Kilts/skirts are awesome. Taking the Elkommando off and putting on shorts or pants makes you wonder what's wrong with us all. My wife loves how it looks, and I love how it feels. The Elkommando is comfortable, fits true to size, and is light weight. I would prefer proper belt loops, free-hanging pockets, and another slash pocket or two somewhere on the kilt. We can but dream.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Men's Elkommando Kilt I find this kilt true to size if one uses a tape measure, not jean size when ordering. The color has changed over the years, from Sand (no pleats), then to Otter, and currently Shark that have pleats. I have all 3 versions. I would like to see other color in the future. Over all this is an Excellent Kilt and I would recommend it to those adventurous enough to break their normal routine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Belt I hike around cotton fields in South Georgia.. The temperature is over 100 in the summer.. Chaffing is a huge problem for me these days.. Bought the kilt to help combat that.. It does help a lot! Very cool down there. I am kind of a big guy 6' and 250 lbs. I do use degree deodorant where my thighs rub together and no more chaffing.. My only complaint is the belt if flimsy and only one belt loop .. I wear a pistol and belt knife while hiking.. Yes we have rattle snakes and cotton mouth where I hike. Also coyotes and sometimes less than friendly dogs.. I have never seen one but a black bear and a cougar have been "seen" on the property. I had to sew belt loops that I made from scrap leather onto the kilt. Now it can accommodate a sturdy leather belt .. That is my only gripe.. Other than that the kilt really combats the heat and I am more than satisfied with the product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this kilt. Need more colors. This has become not only my go-to kilt, but my go-to outer wear for the summer. This baby is comfortable, easy to wear, easy to clean, and looks great on. The only caveat to the Elkommando is that I'd love to see it in more colors. I'd buy one of each if they offered it.
